Nacoa (The National Association for Children of Alcoholics) was founded in 1990 to address the needs of children growing up in families where one or both parents suffer from alcoholism or a similar addictive problem. This includes children of all ages, many of whose problems only become apparent in adulthood.
NACOA seeks to offer information, advice and support to children of alcohol-dependent parents and to reach professionals who work with them. They also promote research into the problems children face and the prevention of alcoholism developing.
